AI and recruitment.

Artificial intelligence for some businesses are an unknown. A lot of media hype leaves employees frightened for what it could mean for their job and some employers are only starting to scratch the surface as to how AI can assist their business.

 

If you have ever recruited a candidate for a position, you can relate to the many hours spent wading through applications. Some jobs attract hundreds of applications, so how can you be sure that you are giving them the time and attention they deserve?

 

There are a number of AI programs available to screen the applications in real time, scanning both resume and covering letter. One such program is Ideal which can match the skills required for the job against their experience. The AI programs offer the recruiter a robust candidate list, complete with an in depth analysis of applicants best matched to the job posted, hence saving a lot of time.

 

The benefits of utilising AI programs for your recruitment process apart from saving you much time, is the ability to remove gender, age or other bias. With the ability to capture data, the software will learn patterns of a successful candidate for all future recruitment drives.   

 

Embracing the latest technology will not take away from the role of Human Resources, but add to their efficiency. The ability to capture and grow a robust database of applicants ensures companies are always recruiting the best candidate for their business.
